The annual Ardbeg Day is almost here! The 2021 release is called Scorch and revisits heavily charred casks (we loved them in Alligator), imparting notes of aniseed, clove and sandalwood. This is the scarcer committee edition which has been bottled at 51.7%.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose : Nutty, spicy, intense with hints of aniseed and patchouli. Smoky, herbal notes, and an impression of oily smoke. With a splash of water more of the classic Ardbeg ‘fennel/herbal/pine’ top notes.
Palate : Oily spicy mouthfeel with a burst of antiseptic lozenges, tar, liquorice, clovepepper. This is then followed by some sweet smoke like briar or sandalwood.
